If you have registered and cannot see the technical indicators on each stock of my Watch List below, make sure you are logged in and refresh your browser.

As an example of the success that my book teaches, in a 7 year time frame from January 3, 2006 to December 31, 2012, Decker Corporation increased 304.7% if you would have implemented a pure buy-and-hold strategy. If you would implemented the strategy that I explain in my book, The Confident Investor, you would have seen a 371.2% return on your investment. This is a 21.8% increase on the profit percentage.

Can your investment system beat the market by that much?

Shares of eCommerce giant Amazon.com, Inc [[AMZN]] have gained more than 50% in the last one year, driven by the twin growth engines of eCommerce and cloud computing. These engines of growth are likely to continue their performance going forward making AMZN stock a good buy. Both the eCommere market and the cloud computing market will continue to grow. And now, Amazon.com Inc has another potential growth driver in its Echo devices and Alexa digital assistant.

Rising popularity of Amazon Echo.

In the last year, there has been a lot of buzz around Amazon's Echo devices and its digital assistant Alexa. Alexa was everywhere during the CES 2017. According to a CIRP report, Echo's brand awareness increased to 82% in the United States last year compared to 47% awareness level at the end of 2015. The rise in the product awareness was driven by strong promotion by the eCommerce giant on both conventional media and its eCommerce platform.

Echo was one of the most sold devices on Amazon.com during the holiday season last year. In a press release, Amazon had said that "Echo and Echo Dot were the best-selling products across Amazon this year, and we're thrilled that millions of new customers will be introduced to Alexa as a result. Despite our best efforts and ramped-up production, we still had trouble keeping them in stock. From turning on Christmas lights and playing holiday music to shopping for gifts and asking for help with cookie recipes, Alexa continues to get smarter every day".

Moving into the fast lane sometimes requires a toll. Nvidia’s investors should keep that in mind.

That tab for Nvidia [[NVDA]] is currently about 40 times forward earnings—expensive for a chip stock, given the PHLX Semiconductor Index averages about 15.6 times. It is also about 35% cheaper than what Intel just paid for Mobileye, a chief competitor of Nvidia’s in the self-driving-car space.

A buyout is unlikely for Nvidia. With a market cap north of $60 billion and a stock price that has more than doubled in the past year, Nvidia is likely out of reach for even those with the deepest pockets. That puts the onus on the company to justify that premium on its own.

It isn’t a bad bet, particularly given Nvidia’s early success in growing its business outside of the PC graphics processor segment.

That especially holds in the auto industry where the push for self-driving cars makes manufacturers hungry for the type of computing horsepower Nvidia’s chips can deliver. Autos are a small business for Nvidia now, totaling about 7% of revenue for the fiscal year ended Jan. 29. But the revenues there surged by 52% from the previous year.

Growth here will likely come from the many key partnerships the company has lined up. The past week alone saw new deals with auto-parts giant Bosch and commercial-truck manufacturer Paccar on autonomous vehicles.

The so-called Dogs of the Dow—the top dividend-yielding stocks on the Dow Jones Industrial Average—are not fetching the kind of returns that investors may have been counting on this year, particularly after the strategy crushed the broader market in 2016.

The idea is to pick the 10 highest yielding stocks on the Dow and adjust the portfolio at the end of each year to reflect changes in dividends.

But the 10 blue chips that offered generous yields at the end of last year are up an average 2.4% so far in 2017, lagging the 6.3% gain logged by their non-canine peers and the Dow’s DJIA 5.4% year-to-date advance, according to Bespoke Investment Group.

Three of the Dogs—Exxon Mobil Corp., Chevron Corp., and Verizon Communications Inc.—are, in fact, the worst performing Dow stocks so far.
